The Gigantic 3 provides large scale recycling, composting, bulky item and hazardous waste collection for San Francisco residents.

The program visits a different San Francisco supervisorial district each month, allowing residents of that district to schedule a free drop-off.

Clean City coordinates the Gigantic 3 with Norcal Waste Systems, the Department of Public Works, the Department of the Environment and Goodwill Industries.

Gigantic 3 events are free and run from 8 am to noon. Crews are on-site to help at all events.

  • Drop off any large items (such as mattresses, yard waste, furniture, appliances, electronics, etc.).
  • Residents only — no businesses.
  • Please be prepared to show proof of San Francisco residence.

Special Wastes

The following Special Wastes items can be dropped off at the Gigantic3 site:

  • Used motor oil and oil filters (Please place used filters in a plastic bag. Do not mix motor oil with anything!)
  • All household batteries (non-automotive)
  • Fluorescent bulbs and tubes (Broken tubes will not be accepted)


The Gigantic 3 program is sponsored by Sunset Scavenger, Golden Gate Disposal and Recycling Company, and the San Francisco Department of the Environment.
